Technical and Administrative updates, issues and gossip
Here we – the Diary of a Workcover Victim Administrators – will alert you to any issues we may have with the site, upcoming new features, maintenance, and keep you posted on some of the weirdest queries we do receive!
Feel free to alert us to any administration or technical difficulties you are having with the site, discuss any site features you’d like etc. You may also want to visit our general ‘website use’ page.
No, we do NOT advertise and we do not run PAID ads (ever)
Here is an extract of an email we recently received – again asking us to advertise (for payment).
“…My company represents a leading provider of xxx. They would like to purchase ad space on your site’s page, workcovervictimsdiary.com/.Ideally, we’d like to mention our client in a sentence on your site, which would link to our client’s site. We could pay you via PayPal for your time and efforts as soon as an agreement is made.Please let me know if you are interested so we can discuss the details. Thanks for your time and consideration….”
Unlike some “workcover blogs and sites” we do not make or attempt to make any money out of injured people’s misery, including our own!
The few “ads” (we prefer to call them resources) we feature on our site are solely word-of-mouth ‘resources’ and are published from our own injured free will and are totally free of charge, as we believe they are a useful, genuine resource for our injured readers.
No, we do NOT pay our authors, co-authors
Here is an extract of an email we recently received – again asking us to “help with the admin” of our site (for payment). The most disturbing part is that many emails come from injured workers!
“…I would love to assist with the administration of the site in any way I can and would like to have a quick chat as I am buried under $37 K …”
Nobody gets paid, nobody makes money.
Everybody does what s/he can, when they can.
Seriously injured workers are recipients of workcover “benefits”, which really means that we are legally not allowed to:
- make money, i.e. by running this popular site (i.e. ask for payment, subscription section, run paid ads etc)
- pay our injured volunteers for writing an “article”
Making money out of the misery of injured workers, is in our seriously injured opinion, fully sick in any case.
And, we know that there are quite a few “websites” and “blogs” out there pretending to “help injured workers”, while in reality all they’re doing is trying to make a quick (and often illegal) buck out of it for themselves, i.e. by asking for “subscription fees”, “download fees for a “copy paste” paper “they” wrote”, running paid (nonsense and misleading) ads and so forth. We say shame on you for making screwed-over, poverty-stricken injured sods pay for knowledge!
